I’ve been into RC for a couple years, and now I’m researching airframe options for my first UAV. I want to use the ArduPilot system in an electric powered, high-wing aircraft with landing gear. A few different aircraft have caught my attention, the StevensAero SOARStik, NitroPlanes Cessna 337, and E-Flite Alpha 450.
I’d like to hear what experiences you’ve had with these aircraft and which you’d recommend or advise against. If there's another good choice I've missed I'd like to hear about it. If looked over the EasyStar and while it looks like a good platform I'd prefer something with wheels.
On a separate note, I’m also curious about flying-wing UAVs that I’ve seen online and in some academic papers. What are the pros and cons of this configuration?
